My awning had a relatively minor argument with a tree and was scraped. The damage is through the black but not all the way through the fabric.

Is there a black repair tape or some other product to put on the damaged area?

Hello
Scraped my Awning while it was rolled up. If this is the case I coated it with black flex seal right up to the track on the trailer.
It is flexible and works fine. I would not try to coat any unexposed area when it is rolled up.

Flex seal is a rubberized coating. You can buy it at most hardware stores. Easy to apply.

Those work well. What works better is to replace the black fabric with a lighter color such as sand from Toughtop. I sure would like to meet the idiot who came up with the idea that a black awning fabric is a good idea. It's like sitting under radiant heaters when the sun is beating on it.

Toughtop Awnings are excellent. I went with the light grey abd it worked well.
